Jacob Frey of Minneapolis and Melvin Carter of St. Paul say the new edict will come into effect on Jan. 19. Starting that day, everyone wishing to go to the bar or eat out will have to show proof of injection or a "negative" test taken within 72 hours of entry.
For ticketed events, Carter added, the mandate will come into effect on Jan. 26 in his community.
Frey, by the way, infamously made it "illegal" to pump gas after dark following the George Floyd psy-op, just because.
"Minnesota's bar industry is not pleased with the new Minneapolis and St. Paul vaccine-or-negative test rules," tweeted Theo Keith, a reporter at FOX 9.
A statement from Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association Executive Director Tony Chesak said that this vaccine mandate is "hard to understand" and both "unjustified and unscientific."
"It targets just one specific industry after zero science or data driving the decision, and zero caring about our dedicated front-line workers who will now add 'enforcement agent' to their plates."
"The only scientific thing we know is that it has devastated the hospitality industry in other cities with these same mandates."
Chesak went on to say that the whole "we're all in this together" mantra is bogus when only certain industries are being targeted with these onerous mandates.
"They say we're in this together – but this mandate shows that the hospitality industry is clearly targeted alone," he says.
"We know both vaccinated and unvaccinated people spread the virus. And it happens at schools, work-out facilities, other retailers, sporting events, and more."
According to Erik Hansen, director of economic policy and development for the City of Minneapolis, it was either this selective jab mandate or a full-scale lockdown for everyone (for some unknown reason).
"This regulation we believe helps protect the health of business owners and patrons alike, while still keeping these businesses open," Hansen said.
At the current time, "fully vaccinated" in both cities only means getting the first two (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna) mRNA (messenger RNA) injections or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) injection.
"The intent is not go in with a heavy hand, but allow our businesses to stay open," Frey added as attempted justification for this tyrannical move. "As far as enforcement goes and how it will function, generally it will be complaint based."
Hansen warned that failure to comply could eventually mean a misdemeanor charge, though this writer would love to see how that would hold up in court. None of this is legitimate law, it turns out, and all of it is unconstitutional.
To make things as difficult as possible for unvaccinated Minnesotans and visitors to the two cities, the new edict also prohibits the use of at-home tests in lieu of proof of injection cards.
"There is really no way if you're taking a rapid test at home to be able to match up the results with the actual person taking the test," said Heidi Ritchie, the interim health commissioner of Minneapolis.
"It's very easy to take a picture of the strip that is your testing results and share it with other people and put it on Facebook or whatnot."
Also, there are no medical or religious exemptions built into the edict. And the rules do not make any sense for young children, which experts are already saying will deter families from going to restaurants in either of the two cities.
